many professions have their own words and expressions. this is true for the medical profession. doctors use many technical terms that most people do not understand. but there are also expressions we use every day to tell about a person's health. let me explain.

last month, i was not feeling well. i was under the weather. i thought i had caught a cold. i had a runny nose, itchy eyes, a sore throat and a cough. i felt tired and run down. i was in poor condition because i had not been getting enough rest.

my body hurt all over. i also had severe head pains -- a real splitting headache. and i was running a fever. my body temperature was higher than normal.

at one point, i blacked out. that's right, i was out cold. i lost consciousness and my friend had to bring me around. he used cold water on my face to restore my consciousness.

i grew concerned that i might take a turn for the worse. i did not want to become sicker because then surely i would be at death's door.
